Section 1: Overview of project work and outcomes Non-technical summary Objectives To develop a UK macroeconomic modelling capacity as a part of the E3MG model under development in the round 2 Etech+ project (T2.12) The macro-economic impacts of mitigation policy in the UK have been assessed, using the Cambridge Econometrics MDM-E3 model. MDM-E3 is one of the best-established macroeconomic models for the UK. It differentiates between industries, consumption categories and regions. The global model (E3MG) being developed by Tyndall through the ETech and Etech+ projects has drawn widely on the modelling techniques and experience generated by work with MDM-E3, so that E3MG may be regarded as coming from the same ‘family’ of models. The Tyndall ETech+ project is currently developing the model to incorporate the effects of long-term technological changes upon the economy, carbon emissions and mitigation potential. In order to integrate Tyndall’s global and UK modelling work, it is desirable to develop a UK model (E3MG-UK) that is fully compatible with E3MG and can be ‘nested’ within it. Because of the basic compatibilities between the modelling approaches taken in E3MG and MDM-E3, it seems sensible to use MDM-E3 as the starting point from which E3MG-UK can be derived. Tyndall would then have the capability to analyse energy system/low-carbon developments at a UK level, which would in turn be linked to the global level.

Work undertaken
The pilot version of E3MG, E3MG 1.3 was developed from the start of Tyndall Phase I with a disaggregation into four regions – EU, USA, China and the ‘rest of the World’, together with an equation system modelling 32 industrial sectors in each of these regions. Together with matching effort from Cambridge Econometrics, a new, expanded version of E3MG (version 2.0) has been developed. This version separately identifies the UK as part of a 20-region structure. The industrial disaggregation has been expanded to 42 industrial sectors to match with the industries in MDM-E3. Initial

results for three stabilisation scenarios, estimating the economic impact and technology switching in power generation and in a simplified form, in road vehicles have been completed.

Results
The results for the UK have been included within a global analysis for the first set of model runs. The costs of stabilising atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide at three levels 550ppm, 500ppm and 450ppm, with the emissions modelled to 2100 have been assessed. Two policy instruments are used to achieve these targets: emission trading permits for the energy industries and carbon taxes for the rest of the economy, with the revenues recycled to maintain fiscal neutrality. These are applied at different rates and at different times to allow for early action under the UNFCCC for three regional groupings: the USA, the rest of the Annex I countries and all non-Annex I countries. Extra investment is induced by the permit scheme and taxes since they lead to substantial increases in the real cost of burning fossil fuels according to their carbon content. This prompts a switch to low-carbon technologies. The ensuing world-wide wave of extra investment over the century to 2100 raises the rate of economic growth, which is endogenous in the model. There is a purely economic benefit in stabilisation, which increases with more demanding targets. The effects of technological change modelled this way turn out to be sufficiently large in a closed global model to account for a substantial proportion (about 20%) of the long-run growth of the system.

Relevance to Tyndall Centre research strategy
Tyndall modelling capabilities are required at the UK scale as well as at the global scale. To date, the Community integrated Assessment System (CIAS) and its modules have been limited to the global scale. A principal aim of the Research Theme 1 is that it should draw together work across the other themes at the Tyndall Centre. Theme 2 has a UK focus and Theme 3 wishes to analyse adaptation at the UK scale. Thus, an important aspect of integrating Themes 1, 2 and 3 is the building of tools to address the UK scale.

Potential for further work
The E3MG model has been developed to enable economic projections of long-term transitions to a low-carbon society. A wide range of policies can now be modelled. These include carbon taxes, inter-industry and international carbon permit trading (e.g. the EU and Kyoto schemes can be assessed). Policies for technological transitions can be assessed. The UK element of the model can be used in combination with UK climate change impacts assessments to provide analyses of the socio-economic impacts of climate change for the UK in the global context.

Publications and outputs
There are no published outputs yet. The UK model will be used as a basis for providing economic data for the integrated urban analysis in Tyndall phase 2 Q6.

Section 2: Technical Report
Background and objectives
Developing a UK macroeconomic modelling capacity as part of E3MG The UK model MDM-E3 was originally developed under an ESRC project in the Global Environmental Change Programme in the Department of Applied Economics, University of Cambridge (Co-investigators Terry Barker and Paul Ekins). It has since been taken over by Cambridge Econometrics (CE), and is the basis of CE’s EnergyEnvironment Service, with regular six monthly updates of data, estimations and projections. The model is being used and developed in research for the UKERC, under an agreement between CE, University of Cambridge and PSI (UKERC). The solution to having potentially inconsistent and incompatible models (E3MG, MDM-E3 and the EU model E3ME) has been to unify the classifications, data collection, estimation procedures and solution software and to distinguish the UK as a region in all three models, so the Tyndall E3MG is in principle consistent with the other models. Cambridge Econometrics has contributed considerable resources in kind to this work, with a team spending some nine months on the classifications and data in 2004. Thus the UK model (E3MG-UK) is essentially integrated within E3MG, allowing for considerable synergies between the research for Tyndall and the UKERC. (The informal agreement has been that the Tyndall research focuses on global issues relating to climate change mitigation using E3MG, whilst the UKERC focuses on UK issues of decarbonisation and energy policy using MDM-E3 and (in a TSEC project) E3ME.)

Methodology
Detailed discussions of the research and the results are provided in the Tyndall Working Paper no. 77, Barker T., Kohler J., Pan H., Warren R., Winne S., (2005) Avoiding dangerous climate change by inducing technological progress: scenarios using a large-scale econometric model. A summary follows. In modelling long-run economic growth and technological change, we have followed the “history” approach 1 of cumulative causation (Kaldor, 1957), which focuses on gross investment (Scott, 1989) and trade (McCombie and Thirwall, 1994, 2004), in which technological progress is embodied in gross investment. Long-run growth and structural change through socio-technical systems, called ‘Kondratiev waves’, are described by Freeman and Louçã (2001) and modelled by Köhler (2005). Growth in this approach is dependent on waves of investment in new technologies. The E3MG model is the first to use a large-scale econometric model with a dynamic structure, which is both sector and region specific, to model these processes. A treatment of substitution between fossil and non-fossil fuel technologies is employed, accounting for non-linearities resulting from investment in new technology, learning-by-doing, and innovation. It involves the use of econometric estimation to identify the effects of endogenous technological change (ETC) on exports and energy demand and embed these in a large neo-Keynesian non-linear simulation model. This then allows policy measures for induced
This is contrast to the mainstream equilibrium approach adopted in most economic models of the costs of climate stabilisation. See (DeCanio, 2003) for a critique and (Weyant, 2004) for a discussion of technological change in this approach.

technological change 2 (ITC) to be modelled. The model has been developed in the traditions of the Cambridge dynamic model of the UK economy (Barker and Peterson, 1987) and the European model E3ME (Barker, 1999). The effects of technological change modelled this way turn out to be sufficiently large in a closed global model to account for a substantial proportion (about 20%) of the long-run growth of the system. The approach has been developed to include the bottom-up technology ETM model within the top-down macroeconomic model, E3MG. Thus, like the studies (Nakicenovic and Riahi, 2003; and McFarland, et al., 2004) which are also based on the linkage of top-down and bottom-up models, our modelling approach avoids the typical optimistic bias often attributed to a bottom-up engineering approach, and unduly pessimistic bias of typical macroeconomic approaches. The advantages 3 of using this combined approach have recently been reviewed (Grubb, Köhler and Anderson, 2002). E3MG incorporates endogenous technological change in 3 ways: the sectoral energy and export demand equations include indicators of technological progress in the form of accumulated investment and R&D; the ETM incorporates learning curves through regional investment in energy generation technologies that depend on global scale economies; extra investment in new technologies, in relation to baseline investment induces further output and therefore investment, trade, income, consumption and output in the rest of the world economy through a Keynesian multiplier effect.

In the models, exogenous or autonomous technological change is that which is imposed from outside the model, usually in the form of a time trend affecting energy demand or the growth of world output. If, however, the choice of technologies is included within the models and affects energy demand and/or economic growth, then the model includes endogenous technological change (ETC). With ETC, further changes can generally be induced by economic policies, hence the term induced technological change (ITC); this ITC implies ETC throughout the rest of this paper. 3 There are also disadvantages. The coupled model is highly non-linear with the possibility of instabilities, multiple solutions and discontinuities. The solution is simplified by adopting the smooth transitions assumed by Anderson and Winne (2004), but local instabilities remain. We are intending to tackle this problem by using the multiple solution techniques of a Bayesian uncertainty analysis.

Initial stabilisation policy analysis
Cumulative emissions of CO2 to 2100 for different stabilisation levels are derived from the MAGICC (a Model for the Assessment of Greenhouse gas Induced Climate Change) model as used by the IPCC (Watson et al, 2001). The E3MG model is then used to derive a cost-effective emission pathway which keeps cumulative emissions within these limits prescribed by the MAGICC model. Costs of stabilisation are then calculated relative to the baseline. The emission pathways that come from E3MG are then put back into MAGICC to check that with the new profile, the same concentrations are achieved. Many other studies of stabilisation costs (e.g. Nakicenovich and Riahi, 2003); Van Vuuren, 2004) also use the MAGICC climate model to represent the relationship between emissions and concentrations. It is a set of linked reduced form models emulating the behaviour of a GCM. It consists of coupled gas-cycle, radiative forcing, climate and ice-melt models integrated into a single package. It calculates the annualmean global surface air temperature and sea-level implications of emission scenarios for greenhouse gases and sulphur dioxide. Although MAGICC and E3MG both model emissions scenarios detailing non-CO2 greenhouse gases, we do not consider the costs of reducing these gases and their effects in this analysis 4 . CALIBRATION AND CRITICAL VARIABLES The industrial and energy/emissions database 5 covering the years 1971-2001 is drawn from OECD, IEA, GTAP, RIVM, and other national and international sources and processed to provide comprehensive and consistent time-series of varying quality and reliability across regions and sectors. It contains information about the historic changes by region and sector in emissions, energy use, energy prices and taxes, input-output coefficients, and industries’ output, trade, investment and employment. This is supplemented by data on macroeconomic behaviour from the IMF and the World Bank. These data are used to estimate a set of econometric equations using cointegration techniques proposed originally by Engel and Granger (1987) and proposed by Abadir (2004) as appropriate for neo-Keynesian modelling of non-clearing markets in which a long-run solution is not necessarily in equilibrium. E3MG requires as inputs dynamic profiles of population, energy supplies, baseline GDP, government expenditures, tax and interest and exchange rates; and it derives outputs of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions, SO2 emissions, energy use and GDP and its expenditure and industrial components. The Common POLES-IMAGE (CPI) baseline has been taken as a starting point. This baseline is derived from the IMAGE IPCC SRES A1B and B2 baselines. CPI assumes continued globalisation, medium technology, continued development, and strong dependence on fossil fuels. Population follows the UN medium projections for 2030, and the UN long-term medium projection between 2030 and 2100. Further details may be found in Criqui et al. (2003). This baseline is used for the population assumptions of E3MG and projections made for government expenditures and per
If the CO2 emission pathway does not result in stabilisation in the full integrated analysis, policy parameters are adjusted in E3MG until a consistent solution is achieved. We judged that the concentrations projected by MAGICC were sufficiently close to the targets given the uncertainties for the conclusions of the paper to hold. 5 The database was constructed, and the equations estimated, by teams in Cambridge Econometrics headed by Rachel Beaven and Sebastian De-Ramon, including Dijon Antony, Ole Lofnaes, Michele Pacillo and Hector Pollitt.

capita household consumption for each region assuming the average growth rate will slow after 2050. With other components of GDP endogenous in the model, GDP (in $ at year 2000 prices and exchange rates) is calculated. Economic growth is near the historic average at 2.3%pa 2000-2100, with higher rates to 2050 and lower rates thereafter. The solution process is complicated. There are three baseline solutions, each yielding closely similar results. The first is the calibrated solution of the model, in which consumers’ expenditures are exogenous. A second un-calibrated solution is derived by including equations explaining these expenditures, and calculating and storing the residuals between the equation solution and the exogenous values. A third endogenous solution then solves the equations with the residuals and so reproduces the calibrated solution. The endogenous solution includes, for each sector and region, sectoral output, employment, energy use and prices and emissions. It is the basis for two baseline sets of carbon dioxide emissions, one in which E3MG and ETM allow technological change, and another in which they do not. In these baseline solutions no new permit schemes or carbon taxes are applied but technological change still occurs and is modelled as a projection of the estimated effects and through learning by doing.
The main conclusion from initial runs of the full E3MG model including the UK is that general technological change alone seems unlikely to lead to decarbonisation. Improvements in energy efficiency are partly offset in their effects on CO2 emissions by the effects of higher growth in exports, incomes and therefore the demand for energy. This phenomenon is a global, macroeconomic counterpart to the rebound effect found in microeconomic studies of energy policies. We conclude that the applications of current cost-effective technologies can decarbonise the world economy, supporting the conclusions of Pacala and Socolow (2004), provided they are specifically driven by increases in the real prices of carbon arising from emission permit schemes and taxes. Our conclusion is conditional on model uncertainties and assumptions, and on specific fiscal polices, with half the permits being freely allocated and the other half auctioned and all government revenues from the permits and taxes recycled back to consumers. If policies are successful in raising real carbon prices, under conditions of macroeconomic stability (so that inflation is unaffected and governmental fiscal rules are followed) then the extra investment is expected to lead to slightly higher global growth and incomes, even for almost complete global decarbonisation.
